  • Embodiment 2
  • Referring to Fig. 2, which is an exemplary flow chart showing the method for obtaining information according to a second embodiment of the present disclosure, the method for obtaining information may be applied to a terminal such as a mobile phone. The method for obtaining information may include:
    • step 201, reading certification information stored in a smart card of an external device, wherein the certification information includes authentication information provided by the operator.
  • When a user wants to obtain various services provided by an operator by using a terminal, the terminal may read the certification information stored in a smart card of an external device, wherein the certification information may include authentication information provided by the operator.
  • In actual implementations, in order to facilitate the terminal to read the certification information stored in the smart card, the operator may store the certification information in the smart card in a preset storage manner when manufacturing the smart card. The preset storage manner includes at least one of NFC (Near Field Communication, which is the short-range wireless communication technology) tags and QR codes, that is, the operator manufactures the smart card in form of a NFC tag card or an ordinary card carrying QR codes. Because smart cards store the certification information in different manners, the terminal reads the certification information in different manners, thereby depending on different storage manners, the terminal may read the certification information stored in a smart card of an external device in manners including:
    • firstly, reading the NFC tags in the smart card to obtain the certification information stored in the smart card by using the NFC technology if the preset storage manner includes NFC tags;
    • wherein, when the operator who provides a smart card stores the certification information in the smart card in way of NFC tags, the terminal may directly read the NFC tags stored in the smart card to obtain the certification information stored in the smart card by using the NFC technology; and
    • secondly, reading the QR codes stored in the smart card to obtain the certification information stored in the smart card by using the QR code scanning technology if the preset storage manner includes QR codes;
    • wherein, when the operator who provides a smart card stores the certification information in the smart card in way of QR codes, the terminal may read the QR codes stored in the smart card to obtain the certification information stored in the smart card by using the QR code scanning technology.
  • For example, the operator compiles the information stored in the existing SIM card into QR codes to be carried in an ordinary smart card, when the terminal reads the certification information in the smart card, the terminal may use an embedded QR code scanner to scan the QR codes in the smart card, so as to obtain the certification information stored in the smart card.
  • It is to be supplemented that, in actual usages, the operator may also store the certification information into the smart card by different storage manners according to different usage requirements. The present embodiment only takes the above storage manners as an example, and gives no limitation to the concrete implementations thereof. In addition, since the operator who provides a smart card may also store a part of certification information in the smart card in way of NFC tags, and store another part of certification information in the smart card in way of QR codes, the terminal may read the NFC tags in the smart card by using the NFC technology, and meanwhile read the QR codes in the smart card by using the QR code scanning technology accordingly, so as to obtain all certification information stored in the smart card. The present embodiment is not limited thereto.
  • The method also includes a step 202, storing the read certification information into a memory of the terminal.
  • In order to facilitate the terminal to obtain the services of the operator directly according to the read certification information afterwards with no more requirement to read the certification information in the smart card every time in usage, after the terminal reads the certification information stored in the smart card of the external device, the terminal may store the read certification information into the memory of the terminal.
  • In actual implementations, the terminal storing the read certification information into the memory of the terminal may include:
    • firstly, storing the read certification information into a preset region of the memory;
    • wherein, since the memory of the terminal may need to store various information such as photos, short messages, and phone numbers, in order to facilitate the terminal to directly invoke the certification information in the memory, and depress the association between the region for storing the certification information and other regions in the memory, the terminal may store the read certification information into a preset region of the memory after the terminal reads the certification information in the smart card of the external device; and
    • secondly, setting the preset region of the memory as a read-only region;
    • wherein, in order to prevent the certification information stored in the memory of the terminal from being deleted by the user, the terminal may set the preset region as a read-only region after the terminal stores the certification information into the preset region of the memory.
  • The method also includes a step 203, obtaining corresponding services according to the certification information stored in the memory.
  • After the terminal stores the read certification information into the memory of the terminal, when the terminal needs to obtain services provided by the operator, the terminal may ask for the certification of the operator according to the certification information stored in the memory, and obtain corresponding services after the certification is passed.
  • In summary, according to the method for obtaining information provided by the present embodiment, by reading certification information stored in a smart card of an external device and storing the read certification information in a memory of the terminal, it is possible to obtain corresponding services directly according to the certification information stored in the memory of the terminal, which solves the problems in the background art that the terminal needs to reserve a SIM card deck for the SIM card such that the method for obtaining information provided by the terminal may restrict expansion of the terminal's functions and restrict ultrathin design and miniaturization of the terminal, and meanwhile, which also solves the problems in the background art of high coupling degrees between the electronic devices and bad electromagnetic compatibility of the terminal. An effect that the terminal may integrate more electronic devices in a limited circuit board to expand the terminal's functions and reduce thickness and sizes of the terminal is then achieved.
  • Embodiment 3
  • Referring to Fig. 3, which is an exemplary flow chart showing the method for obtaining information according to a third embodiment of the present disclosure, the method for obtaining information may be applied to a terminal such as a mobile phone. The memory of the terminal in the present embodiment may store many items of certification information, which is different from the above embodiments, such that the terminal may obtain corresponding services by selecting different certification information according to the user's selection signals. The method for obtaining information may include:
    • step 301, reading certification information stored in a smart card of an external device.
  • When a user wants to obtain various services provided by an operator by using a terminal, the terminal may read certification information stored in a smart card of an external device, wherein the certification information may include authentication information provided by the operator.
  • In actual implementations, in order to facilitate the terminal to read the certification information stored in the smart card, the operator may store the certification information in the smart card in a preset storage manner when manufacturing the smart card, wherein the preset storage manner includes at least one of NFC (Near Field Communication, which is the short-range wireless communication technology) tags and QR codes, that is, the operator manufactures the smart card in form of a NFC tag card or an ordinary card carrying QR codes. Because smart cards store the certification information in different manners, the terminal reads the certification information in different manners, thereby depending on different storage manners, the terminal may read the certification information stored in a smart card of an external device in manners including:
    • firstly, reading the NFC tags in the smart card to obtain the certification information stored in the smart card by using the NFC technology if the preset storage manner includes NFC tags;
    • wherein, when the operator who provides a smart card stores the certification information in the smart card in way of NFC tags, the terminal may directly read the NFC tags stored in the smart card to obtain the certification information stored in the smart card by using the NFC technology; and
    • secondly, reading the QR codes stored in the smart card to obtain the certification information stored in the smart card by using the QR code scanning technology if the preset storage manner includes QR codes;
    • wherein, when the operator who provides a smart card stores the certification information in the smart card in way of QR codes, the terminal may read the QR codes stored in the smart card to obtain the certification information stored in the smart card by using the QR code scanning technology.
  • For example, the operator compiles the information stored in the SIM card into QR codes to be carried in an ordinary smart card, when the terminal reads the certification information in the smart card, the terminal may use an embedded QR code scanner to scan the QR codes in the smart card, so as to obtain the certification information stored in the smart card.
  • It is to be supplemented that, in actual usages, the operator may also store the certification information into the smart card by different storage manners according to different usage requirements. The present embodiment only takes the above storage manners as an example, and gives no limitation to the concrete implementations thereof. In addition, since the operator who provides a smart card may also store a part of certification information in the smart card in way of NFC tags, and store another part of certification information in the smart card in way of QR codes, the terminal may read the NFC tags in the smart card by using the NFC technology, and meanwhile read the QR codes in the smart card by using the QR code scanning technology accordingly, so as to obtain all certification information stored in the smart card. The present embodiment is not limited thereto.
  • The method also includes a step 302, storing the read certification information into a memory of the terminal;
  • In order to facilitate the terminal to obtain the services of the operator directly according to the read certification information afterwards with no more requirement to read the certification information in the smart card every time in usage, after the terminal reads the certification information stored in the smart card of the external device, the terminal may store the read certification information into the memory of the terminal.
  • In actual implementations, the terminal storing the read certification information into the memory of the terminal may include:
    • firstly, storing the read certification information into a preset region of the memory;
    • wherein, since the memory of the terminal may need to store various information, in order to facilitate the terminal to directly invoke the certification information in the memory, and depress the association between the region for storing the certification information and other regions in the memory, the terminal may store the read certification information into a preset region of the memory after the terminal reads the certification information; and
    • secondly, setting the preset region of the memory as a read-only region;
    • wherein, in order to prevent the certification information stored in the memory of the terminal from being deleted by the user, the terminal may set the preset region as a read-only region after the terminal stores the certification information into the preset region of the memory.
  • The method also includes a step 303, receiving a selection signal for selecting prescribed certification information in the memory.
  • In actual usages, the user may obtain services provided by the operator by using different certification information according to different usage requirements. For example, in order to save telephone bills, the user may use a local SIM card every time the user travels to a new place, that is, the terminal obtains services provided by the operator by using new certification information every time the user travels to a new place. Every time the user asks for new certification information, the terminal may read the certification information stored in a smart card of an external device accordingly, and store each of the read certification information into the memory of the terminal, thereby the memory of the terminal may have two or more items of the certification information stored therein. Afterwards, for the convenience of the user's usage, when the user asks for the terminal to obtain the services of the operator by using a certain item of the certification information stored in the memory, the user may select the corresponding certification information stored in the memory. Accordingly, the terminal may receive a selection signal for selecting prescribed certification information in the memory.
  • For example, in a case where the memory of the terminal stores three items of the certification information such as 'the first certification information, the second certification information and the third certification information', being attributed to regions of 'Beijing, Shanghai and Wuxi' respectively, and the user is now traveling in Wuxi, in order to save telephone bills, the user may select the third certification information stored in the memory of the terminal to obtain services provided by the operator. At this time, the user may select the third certification information in the selection menu provided by the terminal, referring to Fig. 4 for details.
  • It is to be explained that, when the terminal stores each item of the certification information into the memory, the terminal may set a serial number for every item of the certification information, such that when the user asks for using an item of the certification information in the memory, the user may select the certification information in manner of selecting the serial number. In actual usages, however, it may also adopt other ways of marking, the present embodiment is not limited thereto.
  • The method also includes a step 304, reading the prescribed certification information stored in the memory according to the selection signal.
  • After the terminal receives the selection signal for selecting prescribed certification information, the terminal may reads the prescribed certification information stored in the memory according to selection signal.
  • The method also includes a step 305, obtaining corresponding services according to the read certification information.
  • After the terminal reads the prescribed certification information, the terminal may obtain corresponding services according to the read certification information. For example, after the terminal receives the selection signal for selecting the third certification information attributing to Wuxi, the terminal may read the third certification information, thereby to use the third certification information to ask for the certification of the operator, and obtain services provided by the operator such as phone calling, sending short messages or logging on network after the certification is passed.
  • In summary, according to the method for obtaining information provided by the present embodiment, by reading certification information stored in a smart card of an external device and storing the read certification information into a memory of the terminal, it is possible to obtain corresponding services directly according to the certification information stored in the memory of the terminal, which solves the problems in the background art that the terminal needs to reserve a SIM card deck for the SIM card such that the method for obtaining information provided by the terminal may restrict expansion of the terminal's functions and restrict ultrathin design and miniaturization of the terminal, and meanwhile, which also solves the problems in the background art of high coupling degrees between the electronic devices and bad electromagnetic compatibility of the terminal. An effect that the terminal may integrate more electronic devices in a limited circuit board to expand the terminal's functions and reduce thickness and sizes of the terminal is then achieved. Meanwhile, in the present embodiment, by storing a plurality of items of the certification information into the memory of the terminal, the terminal may select the certification information required by the user and obtain the services of the operator by using the certification information, which may achieve an effect that the user, when needs to change the certification information, only needs to select corresponding certification information in the terminal without executing a rather complex operation of pulling out the original SIM card and inserting a new SIM card, which is convenient for the user's usage.
